Company reviews
"Fun workplace and great learning experience "
Former EmployeeAccount Manager
Paylocity thoroughly trained their employees and gave them all the necessary tools to succeed within the company. It was a great work place environment and the coworkers are amazing.

"Great culture and technology"
Current EmployeeAccount Executive
The culture is the best I’ve been a part of and the technology is a step above the competition. The only negative is leadership not fixing MAJOR compensation problems when the new fiscal year started for sales reps.

"It's just too much"
Current EmployeeAccount Manager
The company right now is unwilling or unable to embrace change and is seeing high turnover, burnout, and general job dissatisfaction as a result. In the past the role was able to handle both email and phone volume but post covid, and their growth, this is no longer the case. The company, despite many pleas, is unable or unwilling to separate the phone and email queues and as such, clients frequently call in upset email issues are not being resolved. For beginning account managers, your support is minimal and Training does not do a good job of explaining the myriad tasks you are expected to know. It's difficult to find answers to anything but the most basic question, and you will *never* feel like you've ever caught up or are anything but drowning in work.

"Not what it seems "
Former EmployeeAccount Executive
This company seems so great. They will try to sell you on the amazing culture. The culture is inconsistent depending on what team you are on. Management is also inconsistent and unreliable. Only there for you if it benefited their pocket. The sales policy has so many gray areas and nothing is done by management when teammates take advantage for their own good. Also, sales policy is not clear and concise when it comes to commissions and they totally took advantage of every single sales rep when new fiscal began. Reps expecting thousands in commissions ended up with negative balances and no one seen it coming. Ironically this happened in the same month that they made a new acquisition. You can thank the sales reps for paying for this. This place is filled with empty promises and fake people around every corner. Also, their service and implementation teams have tanked, leaving the sales team dealing with nightmare issues that ultimately effect relationships and sales that you work so hard on. They will sell you so hard on the referrals you will get but all them bridges have been burned so good luck with that.
